Description

WRITTEN CLEANING TOWELS PRINTED FIELD OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to printed wet cleaning wipes and to a method for cleaning surfaces therewith.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Wet cleaning wipes are usually pre-moistened disposable wipes which can be used in a variety of both domestic and industrial applications and perform a variety of functions. Wet cleaning wipes are typically used to clean both animate and inanimate surfaces, and can provide numerous benefits such as cleaning, disinfection and the benefits of skin care. In the industry, wet cleaning wipes incorporating a cleaning composition are already known. For example, WO 89/05114 and EP-A-1063284 present disposable wipes which are impregnated with a liquid composition. One particular form of application of wet cleaning wipes relates to rubbing and / or cleaning hard surfaces, as well as applying compositions to hard surfaces, for example, bathroom and kitchen surfaces, eyeglasses, shoes and surfaces that need to be cleaned in industry, for example, machinery or automobile surfaces. The present invention addresses the problem of how to clean a surface efficiently with the minimum spread of contamination. The present invention is especially useful on surfaces that are frequently contaminated such as the toilet, which includes the bowl, the rim, the seat, the handle and the rest of the exterior. It is well known that in order to effectively cleanse these surfaces, it is essential to minimize the spread of germs or bacteria from the surface of a toilet to another surface. In addition, it is essential to minimize the spread of toilet contamination to other areas of the home. Historically, the toilet area was cleaned with a reusable sponge or similar cleaning article. A disadvantage of reusable articles of this type is the tendency for contamination to remain in the cleaning article. This residual contamination results in the spread of contamination when cleaning surfaces. In order to improve the above, applicants provide a disposable wet cleaning wipe (EP-A-00870142.7) which could be used to clean a surface with a reduction in the risk of contamination spreading. However, these wet cleaning wipes, while allowing the consumer to prevent the spread of contamination, result in that only a part of the wet cleaning wipe is used in the cleaning. This inefficient underutilization of the wet cleaning towel leads to an increase in waste and an increase in consumer costs. Therefore, an object of the present invention is to offer the consumer an article that can be used to quickly and effectively clean a surface with the minimum spread of contamination.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The present application relates to: a wet cleaning wipe constituted by a flexible canvas-like substrate containing an aqueous composition, characterized in that the substrate has an impression made with a non-aqueous ink; and a wet cleaning wipe constituted by a flexible canvas-like substrate containing a non-aqueous composition, characterized in that the substrate has an impression made with an aqueous ink; and a process for making a wet cleaning wipe, characterized in that the ink is printed on the substrate before applying the composition thereto; and a process for making a wet cleaning wipe, wherein the substrate has an imprint, subsequently a varnish is spread over at least the surface of the substrate that has received the printing, then the composition is applied to the substrate. A stack of wipes, at least two of the wipes each have an imprint with printed material, where the printed wipes are arranged in a certain order so as to communicate a message; and a stack of wipes, wherein at least one of the wipes, preferably the upper wipe, has printed the instructions for use thereof; and a stack of wipes, wherein at least one of the wipes, preferably a wipe between the lowermost wipes, has printed some instructions indicating that the stack of wipes is almost finished; and the use of Bianca TW® to print images on the substrate in which the composition will be applied; and the use of Bianca TW® in the manufacture of printed wet cleaning wipes; and the use of a crosslinking polymer or a crosslinking agent or mixture thereof for fixing the pigment to a substrate to which the composition will be applied.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION In accordance with the first object of the present invention, the applicant has discovered, surprisingly, that by distinguishing one face of the wet cleaning wipe from the other side, by printing an image on a surface of the wet cleaning wipe, the spread of pollution is reduced. The term "image", when used herein with reference to printing, includes, without limitation, any type of design, brand, figure, representation, identification code, words, patterns or instructions. In an alternative embodiment, the two sides of the wipe may have different printed images. While not wishing to be bound by theory, the Applicant believes that the underlying problem addressed by the present invention is that during the cleaning process, the consumer finds it difficult to observe and remember which parts of the wet cleaning wipe have become contaminated. by contacting the surface. Because the consumer is not sure which part of the wet cleaning wipe is already contaminated, he risks spreading the contamination when using the wipe to clean other surfaces. By printing an image on one side of the wipe, the consumer can now orient the wipe so that he plans to first use the surface area of the wipe and, secondly, have a much greater confidence as to which areas of the wipe are polluted For example, the consumer can use a portion of one side of the wipe to clean the surface and then use the remaining portion to clean an alternative surface in the home. Because one side of the printed wet cleaning wipe is now clearly distinguished from the other, the consumer can wipe a surface with one side of the wipe and then, with the other side of the wipe, confidently clean a different surface without risk of contamination. An additional benefit of the printed wet cleaning wipes, in accordance with the present invention, is that they can communicate something to the consumer. Among the messages that have a particular benefit to communicate to the consumer are the instructions for using the product and a message that the stack of wipes is about to be finished. There is a disadvantage that when consumers do not follow the instructions for use of the product, the performance of the product could be reduced. The instructions for use of the wet cleaning wipes can be printed or displayed on the packaging. When the consumer removes the wipe from the package, the instructions are no longer visible. When using the printed wet cleaning wipes, in accordance with the present invention, the instructions for use of the product may be communicated to the consumer if they are printed on the wipes. In a preferred embodiment, at least one printed wipe, preferably the upper wipe, contains the instructions for use. This has the advantage that the instructions are really kept within reach of the consumer instead of being on the package or on a label. This closeness to the instructions will increase the impact of the message and improve the consumer's understanding of the product's instructions and benefits while increasing cleaning performance. When reference is made here to the upper wipe or to the wipe bottom, we refer to the relative position of the wipe in the stack. A stack of wipes contains a plurality of wipes, one on top of the other. When the packing opening is opened, the upper towel is located at the top of the stack of wipes, that is, it is the first wipe to be seen and removed. The bottom washcloth is located more towards the bottom of the pile and, preferably, between the lower 45%, with more preference, between 30% and most preferably between the lowest 10% of the wipes of the container. It is a disadvantage that consumers can easily stay without damp cleansing wipes before they remember to buy another package or filling. This problem has been solved thanks to the incorporation, in accordance with the present invention, of wet cleaning wipes printed on the stack of wipes. Preferably, one or more of the printed wet cleaning wipes in the stack contain messages that communicate something to the consumer. In a preferred embodiment, the message tells the consumer how many wipes remain. To communicate with the consumer by means of a printed wet cleaning wipe, it is preferred to use a sheet of plastic, paper or other material, since a wipe can be used for cleaning, while a sheet of material other than the wipes should be discarded , thus increasing the garbage. In a further preferred embodiment, the messages in the printed wet cleaning wipes form a sequence that communicate a series of related messages.

The printed wet cleaning wipes, in accordance with the present invention, comprise an ink, a substrate and a composition.

Ink When the ink is referred to herein, it is meant that it is a composition containing a colorant (for example, a dye or pigment) that is suspended, dispersed or dissolved in a solvent, for example, Water. The inks that are preferred to be used in the present application are important for the substrate and show minimal exudation upon contact with water or composition. The inks suitable for use in the present application are preferably aqueous or non-aqueous. When the composition is aqueous, it is most preferred to use non-aqueous ink. Similarly, when the composition is non-aqueous, it is most preferred to use aqueous ink. The inks that are most preferred to be used in the wipes according to the present invention contain a pigment, a crosslinking polymer, a crosslinking agent and, optionally, a solvent. Preferred crosslinking polymers contain vinyl and / or acrylic functional groups. It is preferred that the inks have a viscosity greater than that of water, more preferably between 5 and 200 centistokes, with an even greater preference between 20 and 100, and most preferably between 35 and 85. The viscosity of the ink was measured at room temperature and pressure, using a Zahn # 2 cup. The experimental procedure consists of measuring the time necessary for a full Zahn # 2 cup to empty completely through the hole in the bottom of the cup. In a preferred embodiment according to the present invention, an ink suitable for use herein may contain a pigment, a vinyl chloride / vinyl acetate copolymer with hydroxy functional groups ("crosslinking polymer") and a crosslinking agent. . Preferably, the ink of the present invention further comprises an ingredient selected from the group consisting of: modified soybean oils, waxes, and solvents, as well as mixtures thereof. More preferably, the ink herein contains a pigment, a vinyl chloride / vinyl acetate copolymer with hydroxy functional groups, a modified soybean oil, a wax, a crosslinking agent and a solvent. The modified soybean oils, suitable and preferred for use in the ink herein, include an epoxidized soybean oil. A suitable and preferred wax for use in the ink herein includes a polyethylene wax. A suitable and preferred crosslinking agent for use in the ink herein includes an isocyanate catalyst. In another preferred embodiment according to the present invention, the ink for use herein comprises from 5% to 5% by weight of the total ink of a pigment, from 8% to 5% by weight of the total of the ink of a pigment, from 8% to 5% by weight of the total of the ink of a pigment. a vinyl chloride / vinyl acetate copolymer with hydroxy functional groups, from 0.5% to 2% by weight of the total of the ink of a modified soybean oil, from 0.5% to 2% by weight of the total of the ink of a wax, a crosslinking catalyst, preferably an effective amount thereof and a solvent. In an even more preferred embodiment in accordance with the present invention, the ink for use herein comprises 9.18% by weight of the total ink of a pigment, 12.85% by weight of the total ink of a vinyl chloride copolymer / vinyl acetate with hydroxy functional groups, 1% by weight of the total of the epoxidized soybean ink, 1.5% by weight of the total polyethylene wax ink, an isocyanate catalyst, preferably an effective amount of this one and a solvent. An example of a suitable ink for use in printed wet wipes in accordance with the present invention is sold by SunChemical Corporation under the European code PG50VA02. The commercial name of the ink is Bianca TW®. While not wishing to be bound by theory, the mechanism of action of inks such as Bianca TW® is as follows: the pigment is dispersed in a polymer containing vinyl or acrylic and, after reacting with an agent of crosslinking, polymers containing vinyl or acrylic form a web of cross-linked polymers that trap the pigments and bind them to the substrate.

In another method for fixing the ink to a wipe substrate, the ink can be applied to the substrate and then a varnish is applied, at least in the printed areas of the substrate. In this method, the ink comprises a pigment dispersed in a vinyl or acrylic containing polymer and the varnish comprises a crosslinking agent. In this way, the varnish causes the pigment to be trapped in a web of crosslinked polymers and to be fixed to the substrate. The ink can be printed on the substrate using any method known to those skilled in the art. Preferably, the ink is printed on the practically dry substrate, then allowed to dry before applying the composition to the printed substrate practically dry. The drying process of the ink on the printed substrate can be accelerated using heating, UV light, microwave or infrared radiation furnaces. The ink can be applied to the wipes using any method known to those skilled in the art. Preferably, the ink is applied using flexographic printers. Flexographic printing is well known to those skilled in the art. The details are included in the following texts, which are available to those experienced in the art: "Reference encyclopedie of flexographic equipment and supplies" by Robert P. Long, "Manual for flexographic inks" by Cliff Woof, "Selected Bibliography on Flexography 1980-1984"by Chris Losee (Editor).

Substrate The substrate can comprise any canvas-like material, preferably a weft, which normally takes the form of a sheet of material cut from the weft. The weft may be constituted by the sheets or canvases of material from which the wipes are produced, preferably cut. The weft can be woven or non-woven, of foam, sponge, wadding, tangles, tufts, films or tissue paper containing synthetic and / or man-made fibers, what is most preferred is that the weft is not woven and that contains synthetic and / or man-made fibers. In accordance with the present invention, the canvas can be produced by any method known in the industry. For example, substrates of nonwoven material can be formed by dry forming techniques such as: carding, air or wet laying, such as that performed in a papermaking machine. Other techniques for manufacturing non-woven materials can also be used, such as the blow-melt, spin-jointing, needle-punching and spin-sewing methods. While several embodiments of a web providing a substrate are within the scope of the present invention and are detailed below, in a preferred embodiment the webs are webs laid in air and the nonwoven web contains man-made fibers. In a most preferred embodiment, the weft used in the present invention is produced using the carding method, during which matted fibrous mats are transformed into parallel fiber webs. The term "man made fiber", as used herein, denotes fibers made from cellulose, either derived or regenerated cellulose. They are distinguished from synthetic fibers in that they are based on synthetic organic polymers. A derivative fiber, suitable for use herein, is that which is formed when a chemical derivative of a natural polymer, for example, cellulose, is prepared, dissolved and extruded as a continuous filament and the chemical nature of the derivative is retained after the fiber formation process. A regenerated fiber, as used herein, is that which is formed when a natural polymer, or its chemical derivative, is dissolved and extruded as a continuous filament and the chemical nature of the natural polymer is retained or regenerated after the formation process of fiber. Typical examples of man made fibers include: regenerated rayon viscose and cellulose acetate. Preferred fibers made by man have a fineness of 0.5 dtex to 3.0 dtex, more preferably, 1.0 dtex to 2.0 dtex, although the most preferred is 1.6 dtex to 1.8 dtex. The man-made fibers that are preferred to be used in the present invention are Lyocell® fibers, which are produced by dissolving cellulose fibers in N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide, distributed by Tencel Fibers Europe, G.B.

In the present, man-made fibers are preferred, due to the great acceptance they have among consumers and their economic and usually ecological production. Importantly, man-made fibers, and in particular, man-made fibers derived from cellulose, show high biodegradability and, thus, do not cause damage to the environment when disposed. In accordance with the present invention, the weft may contain fibers made by man, in a proportion of preference of 5% to 50%, more preferably, of 10% to 30% and, most preferably, 12% to 25% Preferably, the weft may additionally contain several different fiber materials such as hydrophilic fiber material, such as viscose, cotton or linen and a hydrophobic fiber material, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or polypropylene (PP) ) in a proportion of 10% -90% of hydrophilic material and 90% -10% of hydrophobic material, by weight. A particularly preferred web comprises 70% wood pulp, 12% man-made fibers and 18% latex binder, preferably a butadiene-styrene emulsion. The weft preferably has a weight of at least 20 gm "2 and, preferably, less than 150 gm" 2 and, most preferably, the basis weight is in the range of 20 gm "2 to 100 gm" 2, more preferably, 40 gm "2 to 80 gm" 2. The plot can be of any caliber. Normally, when the weft is manufactured by a laying process in air, the average gauge of the weft is less than 1.0 mm. More preferably, the average gauge of the screen is from 0.1 mm to 0.9 mm. The caliber of the weft is measured in accordance with the standard EDANA methodology of the non-woven linen industry, reference method # 30.4-89. In addition to the fibers used to make the weft, it may contain other components or materials that are added thereto, as is known in the industry, including binders, as specified. Additionally, the screen may also contain agents for improving the optical characteristics of the screen, such as opacifying agents, for example, titanium dioxide. In accordance with the present invention, the web may contain a binder that is not acrylate. The term "binder", as used herein, describes any agent used to entangle fibers. These agents include resins for wet strength and resins for dry strength. Frequently, it is desirable, particularly for cellulose based materials, to add chemical compounds known in the industry as resins for wet strength. A general dissertation of the types of resins for wet strength used in the paper industry can be found, namely, in the monograph series TAPPI onograph Series no. 29, "Wet Strength in Paper and Paperboard, Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry" (New York, 1965). In addition to the additives for wet strength, it may also be desirable to include certain additives for dry strength and to control lint, known in the industry as starch binders. The binders that are preferred to be used for bonding non-woven fabrics are the polymeric binders, preferably the latex binders, more preferably, the latex binders carried in water. Suitable binders include butadiene-styrene emulsions, ethylene vinyl acetate emulsions, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride and combinations thereof. Preferred latex binders are prepared from styrene, butadiene, acrylonitrile-butadiene emulsions or combinations thereof. The term "non-acrylate binder", as used herein, includes all latex binders that do not contain acrylic acid, acrylic acid ester or vinyl acetate monomers. Preferred binders according to the present invention include: butadiene-styrene emulsions, styrene-butadiene carboxylate emulsion, acrylonitrile-butadiene emulsions, polyacrylamide resins, polyamide-epichlorohydrin resin, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene emulsion, styrene-acrylonitrile. The most preferred binder according to the present invention is a butadiene-styrene emulsion, which can be obtained commercially from Ameribol Svnpol Corp. as Rowene ™ SB 5550.

The binder can be applied to the web by any method known in the industry. Suitable methods include: spraying or spraying, coating (eg, rotogravure coating or float coating), filling, foaming, impregnation, saturation and further extrusion, where the composition is forced to pass through tubes in contact with the substrate , while the substrate passes through the tube or combinations of these application techniques. For example, spraying the composition on a rotating surface, such as a calender roll, which then transfers the composition to the surface of the substrate. The most preferred method for binder application is spraying or sprinkling on the weft. Most preferably, the binder is sprayed on one side of the weft in one application step and on the other side of the weft in a separate application step. Normally, the amount of binder applied to the weft, measured in% by weight of the dry weight of the fibers included in the weft is from 5% to 30%, more preferably from 10% to 25% and most preferably from 14%. % to 22%. Obviously, the amount of binder that will be applied depends, to a large extent, on the type of weft to be treated. To achieve the required strength of the most preferred embodiment of the printed wet cleaning wipe substrate, the fibers are hydroentangled. Hydro-entanglement is a process in which the fibers of the weft are rearranged and entangled thanks to the forces in a fluid. The hydroentanglement can thus be used as a joining means, which relocks and entangle individual fibers in configurations that carry the friction interlacing at the level of the fibers. In addition to the benefits of bonding, hydroentanglement can also be used to give surface texturing, whereby the hydroentanglement returns the fibers to open pattern arrangements. The webs that have been subjected to the hydroentanglement treatment do not contain chemical binders and have not been thermally bonded. The hydroentangled nonwoven webs are strong from the mechanical point of view, they can withstand stretching, traction and abrasion, although they can be made to be tactile and smooth. In addition, the absorbency and wettability of the web is not adversely affected by the hydroentanglement process. Hence, in accordance with the present invention, the substrate of the most preferred embodiments is comprised of practically 100% man-made regenerated and hydroentangled cellulosic fibers. In accordance with the present invention, the printed wet cleaning wipe contains a substrate incorporating a cleaning composition, as described herein. By the term "incorporates" is meant herein that the substrate or wet cleaning wipe is coated or impregnated with a liquid cleaning composition as described herein.

For the preparation of the wet cleansing wipes, in accordance with the present invention, the composition is applied to at least one surface of the substrate material. The composition can be applied to the substrate after it has practically dried. Preferably, the composition is applied after the image printed on the printed wet cleaning wipe substrate has practically dried. Any variety of application methods that uniformly distribute lubricating materials and have a liquid or molten consistency can be used. Suitable methods for the application of the composition include: spraying or spraying, extrusion coating (eg, rotogravure coating or flooded coating), in which the composition is forced to pass through tubes in contact with the substrate, while the substrate passes through the tube or combinations of these application techniques. For example, spraying the composition on a rotating surface, such as a calender roll, which then transfers the composition to the surface of the substrate. The composition can be applied to any of the surfaces of the substrate or to the two surfaces, preferably, to both surfaces. The preferred method of application is extrusion coating. The composition can also be applied to the substrate surfaces uniformly or non-uniformly. By the term "non-uniform" it is meant that, for example, the amount or pattern of distribution of the composition may have variations in the surface of the substrate. For example, part of the surface of the substrate may have greater or lesser amounts of the composition, in which portions of the surface in which the composition is not present are included. However, the composition is preferably applied evenly to the surfaces of the wipes. The composition is usually applied in an amount of about 0.5 g to 10 g per gram of substrate, preferably 1.0 g to 5 g per gram of substrate and most preferably 2 g to 4 g per gram of dry substrate. Preferably, the composition can be applied to the substrate at any point after the substrate and the printed image have practically dried. For example, the composition can be applied to the substrate before or after calendering and before it is coiled in a primary roll. Normally, the application will be made on a substrate that is unrolled from a roll that has a width equal to the actual number of wipes that it is intended to produce. The substrate to which the composition was applied is subsequently punctured using standard techniques to produce the desired perforation line.

Composition The composition of the present invention is preferably suitable for use as a cleaning and / or disinfecting composition. The compositions may be formulated in any suitable form, for example, as a solid, paste or liquid. In the case where the compositions according to the present invention are formulated as solids, they can be applied to the substrate as a solid or alternatively they can be mixed with a suitable solvent, usually water, before application to the substrate. When the composition is in liquid form, the compositions are formulated, preferably but not necessarily, as aqueous compositions. Liquid compositions are preferred herein because of their convenience of use. In a preferred embodiment, the liquid compositions used in the printed wet cleaning wipes, in accordance with the present invention, are aqueous compositions which normally contain from 50% to 99.9% by weight of the total water composition, preferably 70% by weight. 99% and, more preferably, from 80% to 99%. These aqueous compositions have, in ascending order of preference, a pH no higher than 13.0, 1 to 11 and 2 to 10. The pH of the compositions can be adjusted by the use of organic and inorganic acids or alkalizing agents such as hydroxide. of sodium. In an alternative preferred embodiment, the composition can practically be non-aqueous. The non-aqueous compositions contain from 50% to 99.9% by weight of the total composition of the non-aqueous solvent, preferably from 70% to 99%, and more preferably from 80% to 99%. The compositions according to the present invention may contain any non-aqueous solvent known to those skilled in the art.

Compositions suitable for use as cleaning compositions preferably have a pH in the range of 5 to 13, more preferably 7 to 13 and, most preferably, 8 to 10. The compositions to be used as compositions Disinfectants preferably have a pH in the range of 0 to 7, more preferably 1 to 5 and, most preferably, 2 to 4. The compositions herein may contain a variety of ingredients including, among others, a peroxide bleach, disinfectant components, organic acids, surfactants, chelants, solvents, additives, stabilizers, bleach activators, grime suspensions, brighteners, perfumes, anti-dust agents, enzymes, dispersants, perfumes, radical scavengers, buffers pH or mixtures thereof.

SURFACTANT SYSTEM In accordance with the present invention, the substrate preferably incorporates a composition containing a surfactant system. The surfactant system consists of a synergistic system containing at least three surfactants, namely an anionic, a nonionic and an amphoteric and / or zwitterionic surfactant.

For example, C8-C16 alkylsulfate acts by disrupting the cell membrane of bacteria, inhibiting enzymatic activities, disrupting cell transport and / or denaturing cellular proteins. Of course, it is speculated that the best disinfectant performance additionally associated with the addition of an anionic surfactant, especially a C8-C16 alkylsulfonate, a C8-C16 alkylsulfate and / or a C8-C16 alkoxylated alkylsulfate, in a composition according to the present invention, it is probably due to the multiple attack form of the surfactant against the bacteria.

The R chains that are preferred to be used herein are the alkyl chains of Cs to C22. In the present there is an even greater preference for the alkyl chains of C9 to C12. Also present in the present invention are ethoxy / butoxylated, ethoxy / propoxylated, butoxy / propoxylated and ethoxy / butoxy / propoxylated nonionic surfactants. The preferred alkoxylated nonionic surfactants are the non-ionic ethoxylated surfactants. The alkyl polysaccharides suitable for use herein are presented in U.S. Pat. no. 4,565,647, issued to Llenado on January 21, 1986, these have a hydrophobic group containing approximately 6 to 30 carbon atoms, preferably approximately 10 to 16 carbon atoms and a polysaccharide, for example, a polyglycoside, a group hydrophilic In the acidic or alkaline cleaning compositions / solutions to be used in non-rinsing methods, the preferred alkyl polysaccharide preferably contains a broad chain length distribution since these provide the best combination of wetting, cleaning and little residue to the dry off. This "broad distribution" is defined because at least about 50% of the mixture of chain lengths comprises from about 10 carbon atoms to about 16 carbon atoms. Preferably, the alkyl group of the alkylpolysaccharide is composed of a mixture of chain lengths, preferably of about 6 to 18 carbon atoms, more preferably of about 8 to 16 carbon atoms and the hydrophilic group contains about one and 1.5 groups of saccharide per molecule, preferably, glucoside. This "chain length amplitude" is defined because at least about 50% of the mixture of chain lengths comprises from about 10 carbon atoms to about 16 carbon atoms. An open mixture of chain lengths, in particular from C8 to C-i6 is very desirable with respect to mixtures with a narrower chain length range and, particularly, compared against alkyl polyglucoside mixtures with shorter chain lengths (ie, of C8-Cio or of C8-C-i2). It has also been found that the preferred alkyl polyglycoside of C8-16 provides a much better solubility of the perfume, compared to lower alkyl polyglycosides and with more closed chain length, as well as against other preferred surfactants including the C8-C14 alkyl ethoxylates. Any reducing saccharide containing 5 or 6 carbon atoms can be used, for example, glucose, galactose and the galactosyl entities can be substituted for the glycosyl entities (optionally, the hydrophobic group is attached in the 2-, 3- positions , 4-, etc., thus providing a glucose or galactose as opposed to a glycoside or galactoside). The intersaccharide linkages can be, for example, between position one of the additional saccharide units and positions 2-, 3-, 4- and / or 6- of the preceding saccharide units. The glycoside is preferably derived from glucose. Optionally, and less desirable, there may be a polyalkylene oxide chain linking the hydrophobic entity with the polysaccharide entity. The preferred alkylene oxide is ethylene oxide. Common hydrophobic groups include alkyl groups, whether saturated or unsaturated, branched or unbranched containing from 8 to 18, preferably from 10 to 16 carbon atoms. Preferably, the alkyl group is a saturated straight-chain alkyl group. The alkyl group may contain about up to 3 hydroxyl groups and / or the polyalkylene oxide chain may contain about up to 10, preferably less than 5, alkylene oxide entities. Suitable alkylopolysaccharides are octyl, nonyldecyl, undecyldecyl, tridecyl, tetradecyl, pentadecyl, hexadecyl, heptadecyl and octadecyl., di, tri, tetra, penta and hexaglucosides and / or galactoses. Some suitable mixtures include: cocoalkyl, di, tri, tetra and pentaglucosides and tallowalkyl tetra, penta and hexaglucosides. To prepare these compounds, the alcohol or alkylpolyethoxy alcohol was first formed and then reacted with glucose, or with a glucose source, to form the glucoside (attached at position 1). The additional glycosyl units can then be linked between their position 1 and the preceding glycosyl units 2, 3, 4 and / or 6, preferably with predominance of position 2. In the alkyl polyglycosides, the alkyl entities can be derived from the usual sources as fats , oils or chemically produced alcohols, while their sugar entities were generated from hydrolyzed polysaccharides. The alkyl polyglycosides are the condensation product of fatty alcohols and sugars such as glucose, where the number of glucose units defines the relative hydroflicity. As described above, the sugar units may be further alkoxylated, either before or after the reaction with the fatty alcohols. For example, these alkyl polyglycosides are described in detail in WO 86/05199. The technical alkyl polyglycosides are not, generally, molecularly uniform products, but represent mixtures of alkyl groups and mixtures of monosaccharides and different oligosaccharides. For the purposes of the invention, alkyl polyglycosides (which are sometimes also referred to as "APG") are preferred, since they provide an additional improvement in surface appearance with respect to other surfactants. The glycoside entities are preferably glucose entities. The alkyl substituent is preferably a saturated or unsaturated alkyl entity containing about 8 to 18 carbon atoms, preferably about 8 to 10 carbon atoms or a mixture of these alkyl entities. The alkyl polyglycosides of Cs-Ci6 can be obtained in commercial form (for example, the Simusol® surfactants from Seppic Corporation, 75 Quai d'Orsay, 75321 Paris, Cedex 7, France and Glucopon®425 distributed by Henkel). However, it has been determined that the purity of the alkyl polyglucoside can also have an impact on the performance, in particular, on the final result of certain applications, which include the technology of products for the daily bath. In the present invention, the preferred alkyl polyglucosides are those that have been sufficiently purified to be used in personal cleansing. The most preferred alkyl polyglycosides are those of "cosmetic grade", in particular, alkyl polyglucosides from Ca to C16 such as: Plantaren 2000®, Plantaren 2000 N® and Plantaren 2000 N UP®, distributed by Henkel Corporation (Postfach 101100, D 40191 Dusseldorf, Germany).

Suitable amine oxides for use herein are, for example, natural mixtures of C8-C10 amine oxides, as well as C12-C16 amine oxides, which can be obtained commercially from Hoechst and Clariant. The zwitterionic surfactants suitable for use herein contain in the same molecule hydrophilic groups, both cationic and anionic in a relatively broad pH range. The typical cationic group is a quaternary ammonium group, although other positively charged groups such as the phosphonium, imidazolium and sulfonium groups can be used. Typical anionic hydrophilic groups are carboxylates and sulfonates, although other groups such as sulfates, phosphonates and the like can be used. A generic formula of some zwitterionic surfactants that will be used herein is as follows: wherein Ri is a hydrophobic group; each of R2 and R3 is an alkyl, hydroxyalkyl or other substituted Ci-C4 alkyl group which may also be linked to form ring structures with the N; R4 is an entity that joins the cationic nitrogen atom with the hydrophilic group and is usually an alkylene, hydroxyalkylene or polyalkoxy group containing from 1 to 10 carbon atoms; and X is the hydrophilic group which is preferably a carboxylate or sultanate group. Preferred hydrophobic groups R1 are alkyl groups containing from 1 to 24, preferably those containing less than 18 and more preferably less than 16 carbon atoms. The hydrophobic group can include unsaturation and / or substituents and / or aryl, amido, ester and the like groups. In general, simple alkyl groups are preferred for reasons of cost and stability. The most preferred zwitterionic surfactants include betaine and sulfobetaine surfactants, betaines with functional groups such as, for example, aciibetains, alkyl midazoline alanine betaines, glycine betaines, derivatives thereof and mixtures thereof. At present, betaine or sulfobetaine surfactants are preferred, since they help disinfection by increasing the permeability of the bacterial cell wall, thus allowing other active ingredients to enter the cell. In addition, due to the light action profile of the betaine or sulfobetaine surfactants, these are particularly suitable for cleaning delicate surfaces, for example, delicate clothing or surfaces that will be in contact with food and / or babies. Betaine and sulfobetaine surfactants are also extremely mild with the skin and / or the surfaces that will be treated. The betaine and sulfobetaine surfactants suitable for use herein are betaine / sulfo betaine detergents and those of betaine type where the molecule contains both acidic and basic groups, which form an internal salt that provides the molecule with hydrophilic groups both cationic and anionic over a wide range of pH values. Some common examples of these detergents are described in U.S. Pat. num. 2,082,275; 2,702,279 and 2,255,082 which are incorporated by reference herein. The betaine and sulfobetaine surfactants of the present are those that satisfy the formula: R2 R1 - N + - (CH2) n - Y "I R3 wherein R1 is a hydrocarbon chain containing from 1 to 24 carbon atoms, preferably from 8 to 18, more preferably from 12 to 14, wherein R2 and R3 are hydrocarbon chains containing from 1 to 3 carbon atoms, preferably 1 carbon atom, where n is an integer from 1 to 10, preferably from 1 to 6, more preferably 1, and is selected from the group consisting of carboxyl and sulfonyl radicals and, where, the sum of the hydrocarbon chains R1, R2 and R3 are between 14 and 24 carbon atoms or mixtures thereof. Examples of particularly suitable betaine surfactants include C12-C18 alkyldimethyl betaine, such as for example cocobetaine, and C10-C16 alkyldimethyl betaine such as laurylbetaine. Seppíc distributes a cocobetaine under the trade name Amonyl 265®. Laurylbetaine is distributed by Albright & Wilson with the trade name Empigen BB / L®. Other specific zwitterionic surfactants have the following generic formulas: R1-C (0) -N (R2) - (C (R3) 2) nN (R2) 2 (+) - (C (R3) 2) n-S03 (-) or Ri-C (0) -N (R2) - (C (R3) 2) nN (R2) 2 (+) - (C (R3) 2) n -COO (-) wherein each Ri is a hydrocarbon, for example, an alkyl group containing 8 to 20, preferably up to 18, more preferably up to 16 carbon atoms; each l¾ can be either hydrogen (when attached to the nitrogen of the amido), short chain alkyl or substituted alkyl containing from one to 4 carbon atoms, preferably groups selected from the group consisting of methyl, ethyl, propyl, hydroxy ethyl or substituted propii and mixtures thereof, preferably methyl; each R3 is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen and hydroxyl groups and each n is a number ranging from 1 to 4, preferably from 2 to 3, more preferably 3, having no more than one hydroxyl group in any one entity (C (R3) 2).

A surfactant of this type is an acylamidopropylene (hydroxypropylene) sulfobetaine Ci0-C- | 4 fat, which can be obtained from Sherex Company under the tradename "Varion CAS sulfobetaine" ®.

Peroxide compound bleach The compositions according to the present invention may contain, as an optional feature, a peroxide compound bleach. A preferred peroxide compound bleach is hydrogen peroxide or a water soluble source thereof, or mixtures thereof. As used herein, a source of hydrogen peroxide refers to a compound that produces hydrogen peroxide when the compound is in contact with water. Water soluble hydrogen peroxide sources suitable for use herein include native perch; persiiicatos; persulfates, such as monopersulfate; perborates and peroxyacids, such as diperoxidedecanedioic acid (DPDA), perphthalic magnesium acid and mixtures thereof. In addition, other classes of peroxides may be used as an alternative to hydrogen peroxide and sources thereof or in combination with hydrogen peroxide and sources thereof. Suitable classes include dialkyl peroxides, diacyl peroxides, preformed percarboxylic acids, organic and inorganic peroxides or hydroperoxides. The most preferred peroxide compound bleach is hydrogen peroxide. The presence of the peroxide compound bleach, especially hydrogen peroxide, persulfate and the like, in the compositions according to the present invention may contribute to the disinfecting properties of said compositions. It is clear that the peroxide compound bleach can attack the vital functions of the microorganism cells, for example, it can inhibit the assembly of the unit ribosomes within the cytoplasm of the cells of the microorganisms. In addition, the bleach of peroxide compound, such as hydrogen peroxide, is an oxidant that generates hydroxyl free radicals that attack proteins and nucleic acids. Additionally, the presence of! Peroxide compound bleach, especially hydrogen peroxide, provides powerful benefits for stain removal, benefits that are particularly noticeable, for example, in laundry applications and on hard surfaces. Typically, in the compositions, the peroxide compound bleach or a mixture thereof, according to the present invention, is present at a level of at least 0.01% by weight of the total composition, preferably from 0.1% to 15% and more preferably from 1% to 10%.

Disinfectant agent Another preferred component of the compositions of the present invention is a disinfecting agent. Herein any known disinfecting agent can be used, which includes: organic acids, quaternary ammonium compounds, antimicrobial essential oils or their active or mixtures thereof. In the compositions it is preferred to include organic acids, antimicrobial essential oils or their active ingredients or mixtures thereof. Organic acids include citric acid, tartaric acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid and mixtures thereof. The antimicrobial essential oils suitable for use herein are those essential oils having antimicrobial activity. With the term "active essential oils" reference is made here to any ingredient of the essential oils or natural extracts having antimicrobial activity. It is speculated that antimicrobial essential oils and their active ingredients act as protein denaturing agents. Antimicrobial oils and their active ingredients are also compounds that contribute to the safety profile of a composition that contains them when it is used to disinfect any surface. An additional advantage of antimicrobial oils and their active ingredients is that they impart a pleasant odor to the composition containing them without the need to add perfume. These essential antimicrobial oils include, but are not limited to, those obtained from thyme, lemongrass, citrus, limes, oranges, anise, cloves, aniseed, pine, cinnamon, geranium, roses, mint, lavender, citronella, eucalyptus, peppermint, camphor, ajowan or ajava (Carum copticum), sandalwood, rosemary, verbena, Carex pulicaris, lemon grass, ratania (Krameria triandra), cedar, oregano, cypresses, propolis extracts and "mixtures thereof.
